Steve was great helping me figure out my tax situation! He tracked down my last three years of state tax returns that I never received. He was fast and a great price! I would use him again and recommend him to anyone!

Jeremiah is handles down the best accountant I have talk too. He helped me with some workbooks and spreadsheets with our business. He create a excel sheet where it calculates my tax liability at any moment (which is very cost saving because I don’t have to call him all the time) and updates me on all the new tax laws without any extra charge. He is very client base and I wish him good luck in the future and all his endeavor. He is a very talented man.

Tammie is very easy to work with and very professional. I usually prepare my own taxes so I have a decent amount of knowledge preparing them. This year we had some special circumstances so I wanted to make sure they got done correctly. I walked in to one of the big name places but had a bad feeling the whole time. I had to explain to the preparer what boxes to check so they basically just hired them right off the street. I demanded my paperwork back and luckily found AP Accounting. Tammie answered the phone right away and made me feel confident in her from the start. We met up and in person and everything was done very quickly without problems. On top of everything I saved over half of what the big name place wanted. I will continue going to AP Accounting even though my situation was a one time thing because the value for the peace of mind is unbeatable.

    I've had Charlotte do the taxes for my business for the last 3 years - worry and hassle free. She was professional, proficient and personable. A year ago, I was in the middle of a transition period and I needed some guidance; it was natural for me to contact Charlotte because she was familiar with my finances. Hiring her as a consultant was a turning point for my company; she helped me regroup and gain focus.

    We are still working with him, but so far so good. He has upheld everything we discussed prior to meeting and so far has had excellent communication. Very professional.

    Being a small business owner I was very cautious/hesistant and even a bit afraid of hiring an accountant. Fortunately, working with Steadfast Acounting Solutions has alleviated that. Dawn will take the time to explain to you (more than once if needed) "what is what" and does not talk down to you as if you're stupid. She offers knowledgeable and quick service with a friendly chuckle and a big smile.

    Vickie was willing to meet me anywhere, at any time. She has a LOT of knowledge about the tax system, and is going the extra mile with my back taxes. I am very happy I was teamed up with her and highly recommend her for any tax information and help at any time, even other than the April 15 crunch.

    Jeanie was out of the office but Nancy did a great job. Very thorough and even found mistakes on last years taxes which were done by a "Block" head and had reduced my return. Would definitely recommend TaxWorks.

    I believe old fashioned customer service is the difference. I take time to talk to and learn about customers situation. You are not just a quick pay check. I love what I do and I love helping people get the most that they can from their tax or accounting situation.

    About

    I am a CPA currently holding an active license from the state of Tennessee. I have graduated from the University of Missouri, St. Louis and also a QuickBooks Pro Advisor. My specialties include business setup and formation, bookkeeping, payroll services, and business and personal tax return preparation and filing. I have been serving small- to medium-size businesses and individuals for years. I believe business owners need more than an accountant who can guide them around the year. I travel to those busy businesses who do not have time to come to me. I provide year-round free consultation to business owners and individual tax clients.

    Q & A

    Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

    Who can file my taxes?

    Any individual with a preparer tax identification number (PTIN) is eligible to file your income taxes on your behalf. However, this doesn’t necessarily mean they will be the best candidate to provide the help you need with your income tax preparation. The IRS explains that CPAs, attorneys and enrolled agents are all allowed to legally represent their clients before the IRS. They have a more thorough understanding of tax code than an individual operating solely with a PTIN or an Annual Filing Season Program participant who provides their services on a volunteer basis. Consider the complexity of your tax return and what level of expertise you’ll require. Before entrusting someone with your private financial and personal information, do some research on their qualifications. The IRS has a searchable database where you can verify the background and credentials of your income tax preparation professional. Once you have selected someone, ask about their service fees and confirm their availability. Then provide them with all the documentation they require, including W-2s, 1099s and more. Always ask to review the paperwork before it is submitted, and never sign a blank tax return.

    How much does it cost to get taxes done?

    Hiring a professional to help with income tax preparation can be priceless. Pro help can mean no mistakes and a maximized tax return. The cost to get your income taxes done depends on the professional you hire. Tax attorneys or in-demand CPAs will often have the highest rates for their services. Next in the pricing tier are enrolled agents, who will usually have higher rates than individuals solely working with a preparer tax identification number (PTIN). Nationally, the average cost of income tax preparation ranges from $150 to $190. Income tax preparation prices can also vary based on where you live and the complexity of your tax returns. Here are some examples of average income tax preparation prices from an enrolled agent:  

    • Taxpayers filing only a W-2 tax form: $50.
    • Taxpayers filing a W-2 along with additional tax forms such 1099-INT and 1098-E: $150.
    • Taxpayers with several tax forms and one or two additional considerations such as a rental property, investment transactions, K-1 income, 1099-MISC or a simple small business: $225.
    • Taxpayers with multiple activities (rentals, K-1 income, small business, etc.), several stock transactions and more: $395.

    Nationally, the average hourly rate nationally for a tax prep professional ranges between $150 and $450.
